    no it is not a diesel its unleaded. i just said it had gas cause everyone i had asked kept asking me of there was gas in it.

    Hi,

    First a question - this is a TDI (diesel) engine? I'm a little confused because you said you had "gas" in the car. I'm in Scotland so I apologise for my lack of familiarity with your usage.

    Cheers, D.

This happened to my wife's car, and it was due to a faulty ignition key. Something about the chip in it.

OK - so it is not a Jetta 2000 TDI, which the heading at the top of my page here.

The only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

What happens when you try to start it? Does the engine turn over or is it completely dead? If you don't hear the engine turn over I would check to see if your battery is charged. If it isn't it's likely alternator went out. Report back if it's turning over (meaning the battery and alternator is good)

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.


Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

Car wont start


You need to know if the fuel pump is working.TURN KEY ON,BUT DON,T CRANK engine, Listen for the pump to kick on(should hear it.)IF the check engine light is on,have it scanned. A bad crank or cam sensor could prevent starting.IT could be anything from bad plugs,wires,out of gas, or bad sensors.

Engine died while driving..


Hello Friend,
Pull out the spark pugs so, there is no longer compression. Put a wrench on the crankshaft pully. The engine will turn and the pistons will travel up and down. This is of course it the engine hasn't seized. If the engine turns its the starter. Simple.
